Give and you Shall Recieve - organ donation is Israel

As long as medical needs are still considered, I think it's fair.
And I agree - if there were 2 people of equal priority at the top of a donor list, I'd want my organ to go to the one who would pay it forward if it ever eventuated that way.
Obviously if there was one person who needed something most they should get it regardless of their status as a donor, but equal need? I'd prioritise the organ donor, yes.

I am with rainbow on this one, seems fair to me. I actually cant understand someone taking an organ, yet wouldnt give one if the situation was reversed. It is just bizarre to me.

There are lots of reasons people don't want to donate. They may not have even thought about it before they needed an organ, which I guess puts them out of the running. Lots of people don't really think about life and death decisions until actually faced with it.
I am still not in the donate camp. I am not over the trauma of being from the givers side of donation. I might get there one day but if I need an organ before I have gotten over the previous trauma, then I guess I would be plumb out of luck.

IMO, that's quite reasonable.
If you're not willing to donate, why should you get the benefit of someone's donated organs over someone else who IS willing to be donor?

Thanks Ana, I wasn't meaning to make light of your situation. If it came across rudely it wasn't meant to.

I think once people are actually faced with the need, in most instances they would want to take the organ on offer. But they many not have worked through whatever reasons they had for not donating.
Like eyes, for instance. lots of people who want to donate seem to stop short of wanting to donate their eyes. Logically, of course, you don't need your eyes any more than your heart, your lungs, your skin etc but there is a mental or emotional block that needs to be worked through.

I think it's fair. I know a fair few people who are against it because they feel it is gross, I'm sure if they were put in a life or death situation that they would think differently.
My attitude is if I'm gone and somebody else can benefit from it then by all means take whatever you need, I am a full organ donor.
It's not like people aren't aware of organ donation, there are awareness campaigns and anyone who gets a licence needs to consent to it on the form.
